Under India’s watchful eyes, 17th Karmapa visits Arunachal Pradesh - Tehelka


December 2, 2016

The visit by the Karmapa, who escaped from China in 1999, was after the Cabinet Committee on Security decided to lift to restrictions on his travel within India



The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Urgyen Trinley Dorje is presently visiting Arunachal Pradesh. The visit may make China see red which characterises the state as southern Tibet. 

The visit by the Karmapa, who escaped from China in 1999, was after the Cabinet Committee on Security decided to lift to restrictions on his travel within India. 

Despite the Karmapa’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh under the watchful eyes of the Indian government, China may not react to the issue at all. 

Union MoS for Home Kiren Rijjiju met Dorje in Arunachal Pradesh and tweeted about the massive reception to the 17th Karmapa. The last visit by a Karmapa to the region was by the 3rd Karmapa. 

Dorje’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh, began on November 28, when he was received at the airport by Chief Minister Pema Khandu. 

Dorje’s visit is significant as he is one of the two major claimants to the seat of the Karmapa, the head of the Karma Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. Though a majority of the Karma Kagyu monasteries and leaders have accepted Urgyen Trinley as the Karmapa, but a minority supports Trinley Thaye Dorje instead.
